    Dumb Phrases we Use

    We use a lot of dumb phrases....

    Let's start with "heads up".

    The enemy has been spotted and we're about to be in a firefight. Do we REALLY want to yell "heads up"?

    Somebody's throwing rocks - shouldn't we duck our heads so as not to be beaned?

    Heads up, it's HAILING!!!

    RANDOM --- some random guy came into the room.....

    "Could care less"... NO, that means you DO care, because you could care LESS --- I noticed OBP uses the correct version of this one! "I couldn't care less".

    "most unique" - it's either unique or it's not!

    "technically" when what s meant is "actually" - because there's often nothing technical about it - "well, technically, the apple pie is better than the peach".

    And it's not EXPRESSO!!!!! No matter how much you overpay for it!

    Near miss means the opposite of its literal meaning.
